Fog on the Forth

24 March 2012, one of the first foggy days of the year in Edinburgh. Being sat on the Forth we get it a lot but today’s was pretty good in that it didn’t burn off quickly. With that in mind a trip down the Edinburgh coast was in order!

Started off at South Queensferry where the Forth Bridge was nicely fading into the fog.

Didn’t get up close with the Road Bridge but it was only just visible from the Hawes Pier

From South Queensferry it was a short hop along the coast to Cramond, by far the coldest stop of the day.

Ice cream anyone? Nope, not many seemed interested!

From Cramond next stop was Newhaven Harbour where I was photographing sunsets last night, today you could hardly see the Lighthouse which gave some surreal shots with the long exposure filters on.

Last stop, on the coast anyway was Portobello, very mild at Porty and quite busy despite the bleakness of the day.

Spent most of the day concentrating on long exposure work, this was the favourite of the day, very surreal.

On the way home as the fog was getting thicker I wondered if it was possible to get above the fog so headed for the Pentlands where the skies were blue and the sun was out, 15 degrees up there, 9 further down.
